West Virginia is honoring late head football coach Bill Stewart with a highway tribute. From the Associated Press:

"Several West Virginia state senators want to name an Interstate 79 exit in honor of late West Virginia University football coach Bill Stewart. The resolution introduced Tuesday would request that the state Division of Highways name Exit 153 in Monongalia County the "Coach Bill Stewart Exit."

Stewart died of a heart attack in May 2012. He went 28-12 in three seasons in Morgantown before resigning in 2011. Dana Holgorsen took his place.
